John Lancaster Park Parking

Note there are several parking lots at this park. One large lot is along Willows Road, which is close to the football and soccer athletic fields. This parking lot also has a paved path to the playground.

More parking borders the park along Rennell Avenue. There is a loop of parking by the playground, but this loop is mostly handicap parking.

John Lancaster Park Restrooms

A large restroom building is located close to the playground, at the top of the parking loop. The restrooms were open when we visited in May.
